For Burlington High School students and Winooski High School students in grades 9-12:

The Vermont Health Education Resource Opportunity (HERO) program provides year-round extracurricular science enrichment and career exploration for high school students interested in health care and health science. Participants come together by grade level in spring and fall for hands-on science events that provide a deep dive into topics related to the human body in health and disease.

Through the academic year, participants connect with mentors for career guidance and exploration, and for help with college and career pathway planning. HERO also includes events for participants’ parents and families about post-secondary planning. Participants finishing their 10th grade year will attend a summer health science exploration program at no cost as part of the HERO program.
